Haiti has become one of the poorest six countries on earth. Despite heroic beginnings -- this tiny nation was born of a successful slave revolt -- Haitians today struggle, against tremendous odds, for mere survival. The book chronicles Haiti's rocky history and outlines Haitians' current attempts to live with dignity.
"The book details the country's climate, geography, agriculture, industry, daily life in both rural and urban areas, and arts and culture. The book features maps, black-and-white photographs, and special boxes...The book's final pages offer a set of facts-at-a-glance, a detailed chronology, an annotated bibliography including works for both children and adults, an annotated list of works consulted (including web sites), and an index."
